Additional Information

Style: Louis Philippe (1830-1848)

The Louis Philippe style develops in a context characterized by two main factors: the expansion of the bourgeoisie and the advent of the industrialization of production processes.
This style therefore faces the decline of artisans and the new needs of economy and comfort.
Aesthetically it incorporates elements from the past, especially from the Gothic and the Renaissance, preferring very curved shapes for the seat backs, legs and deer-like feet, with a very rich decoration.
It mainly uses dark woods: ebony, rosewood and mahogany, side by side for contrast with light elements.

Time: XIX Century - from 1801 to 1900

Main essence: Cherry tree

Obtained from prunus cerasus , a plant of oriental origin, it is a hard wood with a light and delicate color, with a reddish vein. Due to its diffusion and availability it was used in Europe in popular furniture. In cabinet making, in the seventeenth century, it was widely used in France and England for inlay work. In Italy it was very successful in Lucca. It was also very popular in the United States for the manufacture, from the late 1600s, of commonly used furniture.
